RESOURCEFUL

 

To achieve more with our minds, our capabilities and the natural and economic resources available to us, by: 

  • Redefining what is and isn’t possible.  Embracing the possible, thinking outside the box and practicing continuous creative destruction.     

 

  • Being confident and believing in our capabilities.  Be selfless, acting for the common good – allowing the success of the whole to assure the result for the self.

 

  • Acting, not accepting, making it happen.  Ask for the assistance you need. Get in the game, take initiative, and influence the outcome.

  

  • Viewing challenges both realistically and enthusiastically.  Optimize outcomes based upon the resources available to you. Turn challenge into opportunity because you never stop the creative processes.

 

  • Remaining positive, always working multiple possible solutions. Be open to learning; embracing both strength and weakness but learning how best to use each.  Even as you achieve, continuously raise the bar and hope for more.  

 

 

RESILIENT

A more rapidly changing and evolving planet calls for ever increasing levels of resilience among our people, organizations, and assets – an ability to perform under conditions of enormous stress and change. So, we must:

 

  • Have the capacity to survive, adapt, and grow despite facing all forms of chronic stresses and acute shocks.  Be able to withstand, respond to, and adapt and emerge stronger after tough times, and live better in good times.

 

  • Reflect a staunch acceptance of reality; have deeply seated beliefs and strongly held values, and a relentless ability to improvise in the face of challenge.

 

  • Retain perspective.  Choose action over emotion. See failure as a helpful form of feedback. Always be able to change course and keep progressing.  

 

  • Succeed where others fail – not just experience, learning, and skills – resilience ultimately determines who wins and who loses the most difficult battles – in health, in sport and in business.

 

  • Be grounded – by having extremely sober and down-to-earth views of what matters for survival and success.  Maintain a cool, slightly pessimistic, sense of reality.  Be always striving and tinkering, always seeking improvement, always making the most of whatever resources you have.

 

  • Derive meaning from difficulty.  Be not a victim, but a survivor.  Learn from disappointment and find ways to bridge from failure to success. Let your beliefs and values provide means both to interpret and shape events and outcomes.

 

Success requires that we, as people and as organizations, constantly strive toward a clearer view of our future, of what lies ahead and of how to deal with challenges yet to come.  Learn to be:

 

  • Forward, rather than backward, looking. Be both a dreamers and a realist. Possess the ability to see as possible that which today still seems impossible. Remain grounded in the laws of physics, math, chemistry, and biology, but unbounded by the limits of man’s previous discoveries and conclusions.

 

  • Be discerning; do your diligence, ask tough questions, face reality, but also see the fine line between the path not taken and the dead-end.  Be forever open to the possible, forever inquisitive, challenge the status-quo, and refuse to accept failure as a definitive answer.

 

  • Be a visionary – possess the ability to see what others do not or cannot.  Take advantage of technology and of learning.  Be simultaneously creative and destructive of your own prior creativity.  Play the game not one, but several moves ahead of your opponent and always explore all options.

 

  • Be perceptive and continuously learn and improve, constantly refining your perspective, rearranging the pieces to draw new conclusions and insights. Understand that each new learning is not an end, but just the path to the next new learning and the next new perception.  

 

When you act, be both efficient and effective:

 

  • Achieve maximum productivity with minimum waste of materials, energy, efforts, money, and time.  Be organized, methodical, systematic, logical, orderly, and businesslike but do so in ways that maximize outcome per quantum of input.

 

  • Do the rights things and do them in the right way.  Achieve your result by finding a new way, rather than stepping on the efforts of others. 

 

  • Leave your surroundings and planet in a better shape than when you arrived.  Have lasting and memorable impact.
